Through this Request for Standing Offers (RFSO), the Department
of Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) is
looking to establish a maximum of three (3) Departmental
Individual Standing Offers (DISOs) for Public Notice Services,
which could be used for advertising campaigns estimated at up to
$100,000.00 (excluding GST/HST).

The GC typically uses public notices to alert Canadians to
changes in regulations and for health advisories. The GC also
uses public notices for routine business such as public
hearings, offers of employment, notices of public consultation,
or changes to business hours. These types of public notices are
typically on matters of local or regional interest but can also
be national in scope.

This request for standing offer for national advertising
services is one of a series of solicitations to estabish various
procurement instruments for the provision of advertisng
services. The other solicitations that compliment this
solicitation are:

EP361-130010/A Request for Standing Offer for advertising
creative services with ten (10) different Offerors to be used
for requirements valued up to $200,000 (excluding GST/HST);
EP361-130020/A Request for Supply Arrangement for advertising
services to establish arrrangements with qualified suppliers for
advertising requirements;
EP361-130030/A Request for Standing Offer for aboriginal
set-aside advertising services for requirements valued up to
$350,000 (excluding GST/HST). This solicitation will be
published at a later date;
EP361-130050/A Request for Standing Offer for Digital-only
advertising services with four (4) different Offerors to be used
for requirements valued up to $350,000 (excluding GST/HST). This
solicitation will be published at a later date.

Suppliers can submit offers/arrangements for all of the above
types of procurement tools as long as they meet the requirements
set out in each solicitation document.

Canadian Content Policy - The requirement is limited to Canadian
goods and/or services.
Trade Agreements - This procurement is not subject to any trade

Note to Offerors
Offerors are reminded that in order to ensure a clear
delineation between the GC's media buying agency (contract no.
EP361-091572/001/CZ) and the GC's creative and planning
agencies, an exclusivity clause presently forms part of the
media buying agency contract.  The media buying agency, and as
applicable, its parent company, its subsidiaries corporation,
and any body corporate of the Contractor's immediate family will
not be eligible to bid on other GC procurement contracts
relating to advertising.  The resulting Standing Offers fall
under this exclusivity provision as business related to
advertising.  Further, any subcontractor proposed by an offeror
on the RFSO will be bound by the same terms and conditions as
the offeror.

Canada reserves the right to negotiate with suppliers on any

Documents may be submitted in either official language of Canada.

Evaluation Process
Bidders MUST meet all the mandatory requirements of the RFSO. 
No further consideration will be given to bidders not meeting
all the mandatory criteria.  The mandatory criteria include:
providing three (3) examples of advertising/marketing campaigns
which were completed within the last three (3) years of the bid
closing date.
identifying the key personnel who would be assigned to several
key categories
complying with the certification requirements described in the

Bidders that meet all mandatory criteria will be evaluated
further using point-rated and financial evaluation criteria.

Period of the Standing Offer
The period of the Standing Offer will be from date of award to
May 31, 2015 with the possibility of two (2) additional one (1)
year extension periods under the same terms and conditions.

Basis of Selection
The three (3) responsive bids with the highest combined total
(70% technical / 30% financial weighting) will be recommended
for award of a Standing Offer.
